Red Hat Academy Open Talk Series

Red Hat Academy is offering an Open Talk Series of 4 interactive sessions to students and instructors of partnered academic institutions throughout 2021/2022 to complement their Red Hat Academy training with broader insights on the IT industry trends and guidelines to succeed in the job market by hand of Red Hat technical experts.

You will get inspired and understand how teams work in an open business culture with open practices and methodologies by hand of our exclusive board of panelists, internationally recognized advocates of Red Hat.

According to a recent IDC study (December 2020):
Employees with Red Hat training apply knowledge about new technologies much better, work more efficiently and effectively, onboard faster, and are regarded as higher-performing employees. This is important both for development teams that can deliver new software and features faster and for other IT teams responsible for delivering IT services to support business operations. *
